reflections of 2008.... hmmm... too tired to really have any. I will just say that i am grateful for the friends that I have, and that I am lucky to know each and every one of you. Now I am off to bed so I can actually enjoy my day off tomorrow. A pre-emptive Good Shabbos to those of you that it applies to.

status update

So I have no updated in a while. Mostly because B"H my life is pretty boring. Thank G-D work is doing well. I really like my new-ish day job. It is really nice to be appreciated for what you do. The drivers ed is the same as always, a little frightening, very rewarding. Hope all is well with all of you.

I am sorry I have not posted. I have nothing really new to add. I started a new job this week, and so far, B"H it seems to be going well. Still doing drivers ed.

Status Quo

It has been brought to my attention that I have not posted in almost a month. You would think that people would be happy for me to keep my mouth shut for a while. I have nothing new to report really. I am still working at DJS, still teaching drivers ed. Still enjoying the heck out of my re-found love of crafting, still not having much of a social life. So that is it from here. Happy? I posted!

more craftiness!

Here it is, coming to you live from Baltimore, where the weather is, eh.......... Day number 47. For those of you still counting with a bracha, well done! Anyway, I made these blankets for the Rambam Chinese Auction. The first one is kid sized, perfect for snuggling under on those cold drizzly days, and the second one is grown up sized. It was supposed to just be a couch throw, but got out of hand. I can picture it being used to curl up under Shabbos afternoon as one does some light reading. Hope you enjoy the pics.

I made a bath poof/shower scrubbie thingie! I get so sick of buying the ones in the store and then having to replace them every few months because they fall apart, or just get gross. I made this one out of 100% cotton so it is machine washable and dryable. Let me know what you think.

More Crafty Goodness

cup cozy with button
Originally uploaded by morah01

OK so I made these for a Craftster swap, and since I do not think my partner reads my blog, I am pretty safe in putting this up. I made these cup cozies, one with a button closure to get around the mug handle, and the other with a hole to pull the handle through. They are great cause they allow you to hold the mug while it is hot, while also keeping the mug warm so the drink maintains its heat. Let me know what you think. F OUT!!!!

crafty goodness

I have been busy working and... well working. I wanted to take a minute to show off though. A lady at work asked me on Friday if I make slippers, and I replied that I did, but that just now I was so busy that I really did not have time. She replied that it was a shame b/c she has a friend who is undergoing chemo R"L, and her feet are always cold. Well, after that I could not just sit there, so yesterday, I whipped up these. I think they look springish (I also think the colors remind me of a watermelon) and I hope they bring her some small measure of cheer.

I will also be posting in the near future the blankets I made for the chinese auction to benefit one of the schools here, and also hopefully (if she ever sends me pics) the top I made for my crafty friend Xan

Thanks for looking, that is all from here in temperate Baltimore, F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so some of you know that I had a "meeting" with my boss today, that I was nervous about. The meeting turned out to be the stupid temp agency making me their employee of the month. This "honor" came complete with paper award, balloons that I then had to schlep home on the subway, and treife chocolate. Whoopee..... Still no permanent job. BLAH

Ho Hum.........

I know I have not been posting lots. Working lots of hours precludes me having lots of posting time. I just wanted to wish everyone a Chag Kasher v'Sam'each, in case I do not have a chance to do it in person (Mrs. Druyan, this mostly means you). I am B"H doing well, except for the fact that since I have no health insurance I have not had an arthritis treatment since January, and I am having a fair amount of joint pain and swelling. Still, B"H it is not stopping me from cleaning for Pesach , just means it takes a little bit longer. Speaking of which, I think I can see the end. I am almost done with my kitchen, and after that all I have is my car, and I have slave labor for that!
That is all from here... F OUT!!!!!!!!!!

Hamakom Yinachem....

I do not often post my political rantings on this blog, nor is it usually maudlin, todays post is a bit of both.

8 innocent lives were taken yesterday. Sometime yesterday afternoon our time, yesterday evening, Israel time, a gunman walked into Mercaz haRav Yeshiva and began shooting. I do not even know most of the partculars. These were innocent Yeshiva Boys who were preparing to have a Rosh Chodesh party, and instead, their parents are now sitting shiva. I came across this picture as I was reading and it just rocked me to my very core.

I cannot stop crying now, for these boys, and for all the other victims of terror. Please let it end soon. Let these families know no more sadness.

just checking in.........

I know that I have not blogged in a while, and to that I say.... TOUGH! Life has been insane lately, between working my day job (Yay DJS), and working my night job (yay drivers ed???) and trying to find a new roommate (yay me!) I just have not had time. I have not even really had any time to craft lately, which is leaving me a little less sane than usual. No comments from the peanut gallery (yes, Mrs. Druyan, that means YOU!) So I am heading to bed now, cause I am exhausted, but I thought I would leave you with a pic of what started as a scrap blanket, and now covers my full size bed!!!!!! It is really cool though, because I have yarns that I have used to make baby blankets, and some of the yarn I inherited from my Ima, and some of the yarn from the projects that I have done recently. Anyway, bottom line is I am coming to the end of this thing, and have to figure out a way to back it on one side with fleece or flannel so that my toes do not poke through the holes. Let me know what you all think!

I apologize for my lack of blogging. I have been working lots lately, and looking for a new roommate, and helping my friend with her new baby, and generally just not being around. I did want to let the general blogosphere (or the 4 of you that read this) know that I found out on Friday that my contract has been extended another month! So yay me!

Whaddya think?

So you all know that I am crafting more and more these days. I made myself a matching hat and scarf which I am really pleased with. I decided to try hobo mittens because my hands are always cold in gloves, but sometimes I need my fingers. Hobo mittens are fingerless gloves with a mitten top that can be folded down. I made them to match my hat & scarf, and I am mostly pleased with the results.

Here it is open, please ignore all the ends I could not quite weave in.

Here it is closed.

What to y'all think?

Feast Your Eyes!

Drum Roll Please...................................

Here she is, Ladies, and Gentlemen, the newest member of the H clan. Isn't she gorgeous, K"EH. She got her name on Shabbos, and for those of you that know her fam, you can call or email me and I will be happy to tell you what it is. Needless to say, Shabbos was HECTIC. Besides the new princess, RDH, there are 4 other beautiful H kids. They are all sooo excited about their new baby. However to most children excitment leads to grumpiness and crankiness. Not to fear, not aunt Faye was there to smooth things over, and as an added bonus I got LOTS of baby holding time. She seems to like me, in that she burps for me, then falls asleep in my arms. Enjoy the pics.

here is one more of the babe and her Mommy. Aren't they just naseuatingly cute?
